The Preferences window in Firefox 4.0b4 is too narrow

Posted

I just upgraded to Firefox 4.0b4, but found the Preferences window is too narrow to show all the content. It isn't resizable, and the maximize button isn't enabled, so there's no way to alter the width. This makes it impossible to set some of the preferences, and awkward for others. I hope someone can help me fix this problem.

Regards,

Geoffrey Odhner
